Prayers for the many people being effected by this natural disaster that’s happening now:

On Friday the 14, in the local 5pm hour (I think) a volcano (Hunga-Tonga-Hunga-Ha'apai) erupted and at least one tsunami was generated. There is satellite imagery/vid of the eruption in the beginning of the first embedded video below…

Currently, parts of the area might be in darkness (due to the ash cloud or maybe just time of day?)…

Because it’s where I saw this and there is the most info and videos that I can find, here’s a link to Twitter but you might have to copy/paste:

There is a video at www.nzherald.co.nz...

Underwater volcano and so far the Tsunami has been on the small side, however the volcano continues to erupt and people are warned to stay inside and cover stuff due to ash.


Underwater volcano Hunga-Tonga-Hunga-Ha'apai has erupted again, sending ash, steam and gas 20km into the air.

There is a tsunami warning in place for all the islands of the Kingdom of Tonga as the volcanic activity affects coastal water levels. People are advised to stay out of the water and away from the coast.

The volcano is located about 30km south-east of Fonuafo'ou island in Tonga.

Tonga Geological Services head Taaniela Kula said the eruption had a radius of 260km.

It was about seven times more powerful than the last eruption on December 20 last year and continuing to grow, Kula said.

I think that one was yesterday or a couple days ago, and I’m pretty sure a new eruption happened real recently… There are videos, from what appears to be in the last hour, of the eruption and tsunami on Twitter…
(I embedded a couple YouTube vids on my original post)

It is rather worrying that very little has been heard from Tonga since around two hrs after the eruption and its been around eleven hrs.

WAVE ALERT Urgent tsunami warning issued for Washington, Oregon and Alaska coasts


14:45, 15 Jan 2022Updated: 15:51, 15 Jan 2022



AN urgent tsunami warning covering Washington, Oregon and Alaska has been issued after an underwater volcano erupted near Tonga. Warnings have also been issued for the island nation, New Zealand’s North island and Canada’s British Columbia.




According to New Zealand’s National Emergency Management Agency, "strong and unusual currents and unpredictable surges at the shore" are expected. It said its weather stations had observed “a pressure surge” Saturday evening, following the eruption.




The Matangi Tonga news site said scientists had seen massive explosions, thunder and lightning near the volcano after it started erupting early on Friday. The site said satellite images showed a three-mile wide plume of ash, steam and gas rising up 12 miles into the air.

Remin ds of when i see those vids on how a Nuclear bomb strike would look if one went off.


Looks and sounds like this event isn't over.

Daaang Mother nature, you are awe inspiring but scary!! Hope everyone stays safe. How far will the ash fall? I'll read now.

Watched the first video of the waves coming in. Love the coast but not so sure I would like to live on one.

Poor Tonga. I hope no fatalities.
Boats have been destroyed in rich mans land on the Tutukaka coast of Aotearoa. The tsunami alert failed us here.

Looks like the tsunami is making landfall in California and as far south as Chile.

Somebody, somewhere, probably on a boat, need to get to Tonga.

This morning at about 5am here in Alaska, 8 hours or so after the event, apparently it sounded like a war zone popping off. The consensus is that it was the shockwaves and booms from the eruption. I didn’t hear it, but plenty of people did. Crazy.

Got a childhood friend, his family is on America Samoa, he is working in Washington state right now.

God I feel nauseous now, I can't imagine his panic.

There was a tsunami warning in SF Bay Area, CA near my neck of the woods because of this

I'm pretty far inland, but those near the coast saw or are seeing some huge waves.
